I bet a complete scout harness weighs the same as a ZJ driver's door harness

^cool! Is that a model?

My scout may end up being even closer to a ZJ, as small block mopars can be bolted to the transfer case using a combination of stock IH & mopar transmission pieces.

Yea, it's quite small actually.http://www.carsandracingstuff.com/library/s/scoutii.php


I would make the Scout a beach cruiser. The ladies love the vintage.

Back in our senior year of high school('89) my best friend bought a very unique rig.
It was a lifted '76 Scout with a '68 Chevy Camaro body. I believe it had the 304 V8 in it and it had 35s on it with a Lincoln-locked diff in the rear.
That thing was every bit as capable as it was strange!!!
Wish we had taken pics of it, but we were young & dumb...
We looked real cool using a 3' dowel("The Gas Stick") down the filler tube to see how much gas it had in it because none of the gauges worked...

Then, a couple towns over, there was a strictly off road '57 Mercedes 4dr on a K5 Blazer chassis??(I'm guessing from the short wheelbase) with a blower & dragster headers coming up through the hood, an insane lift, and what had to have been 44s on it. It was a redneck limo from hell .... LMAO

A bud of mine had a scout Terra, 345, slow as all get out, but probably run forever. They were way over built, a good thing. Might make a good rock crawlin rig. Lots of torque, low rpm. Wish I had one. They make farm implements for pete's sake, ya don't think they're gonna last?
